Refurbished from a 1910 electrical generator station, the Edison is a great place to grab dinner or drinks, then dance to bands like the Dustbowl Revival, Jennifer Keith, and the New Recessionaires (usually once a month on a Thursday, check the calendar).
Amazingly, there is no cover to get in, but please do buy something so they keep having Swing bands.
Watch the fireworks later in the night and do some more dancing. Yes, this is an expensive date, but I think it’s worth it once in a while. You can also check out California Adventure on one of their Dapper Days, where you’ll run into other Swing dancers dressed vintage!There is no cover, but there is a dress code, so dress up!I love the Fairfax Farmer’s Market (adjacent to the Grove in mid-city).Dating back to 1934, it has a romantic, vintage feel that is hard to find in LA.
Look for nights during the summer when danceable bands are playing like Dave Stuckey, the Califonria Feetwarmers, and the Lucky Stars.DJ Professor Watson spins electroswing tunes with guest DJs and bands.
